Re: Public money and Private School

Just because I am curious, what is the beginning pay for a teacher in
a public school compared to a private school?
I ask this because every time I have looked at private and charter
schools, I would have to take such a cut in pay, it was like taking a vow of
poverty. If I was independently wealthy or had a spouse who could make up the
difference, I would try a private school. As a single parent, I do have to
pay attention to the paycheck.

Another thought... Public schools have zero control over the raw
material, i. e. background of children (and more important, parental
commitment to education). Is it my imagination or do the private schools get
a higher percentage of kids from families that value education?
